Discover the art of light at the Exploratorium
The Exploratorium's 'Glow' exhibit features luminous sculptures from eight artists turning up the radiance at Pier 15.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- What better way to engage, discover, and get festive than at the Exploratorium. The galleries will shine bright this winter with an exhibit called "Glow."

Glow is an annual program at the Exploratorium that has expanded over the years and is now bigger and better than ever.

"Light is something that's all around us. It's illuminating. It's transformative," explained Exploratorium Art Director Kirstin Bach. "We'd like to think of art at the Exploratorium as being the same thing. As in being illuminating and transformative. It helps us see something new."

Find captivating light art that radiates through the space by talented artists Michael Brown, CHiKA, Nick Dong, Alicia Eggert, Ekene Ijeoma, Luke Jerram, Burt Libe, and Ames Palms.

Connect, play, and get inspired as you wander throughout the museum.

"For this year's show, we chose works that often are very reflective and sort of point to the way people are connected to each other," said Exploratorium Public Programs Manager Kathleen Maguire. "We think that is something people are looking to feel right now--a sense of connection and a sense of sort of re-emerging into the world."
